Blown Sealed Wine Bottle, ASCR, All Souls Common Room, All Souls College

This free blown ASCR bottle dates to the second half of the 18th century.

All Souls College is one of the Oxford, England Colleges and was founded in 1437. The College stocked the wine cellar and began ordering sealed bottles in 1750. Over the following 100 years the College bought 20 batches of bottles, each large batch having a different seal. Only one batch was dated 1764, though the College records show the date does not have specific significance. Bottles were made from 1750 into the 19th century and can be dated by the form and details of the bottles.
